So now I am embarrassed. Why? Because I missed Squirrel Appreciation Week - it was October 5-11 this year. How dare I miss the week honoring my favorite nemesis!
See this pic of the enemy? It was provided by a new service that helps bloggers find free use blog pictures and photos for the blogs, and websites. It's free to register, free to use the photos, you get some cool code to help get the photos in your post or site, they host the pics, and they have a pretty decent selection! Totally worth trying out, we bookmarked the site today.
So here's something I did not know about squirrels! The vid below shows that squirrels use their memory, rather than their sense of smell to find their food. Guess with all the Mission Impossible squirrel vids on YouTube, I coulda guessed, but here's a bit of scientific proof. But with my 220 million olfactory receptors, I still think I have an edge on the little buggers. Now if I could just catch me one!
